A myriad stars
Spilt across the sky like milk
Our own Galaxy
I saw this weird cloud array the other day.
It looks like the Milky Way Galaxy, up there in the daytime sky.
Wistful clouds for wistful thoughts.
I love sky-watching; day or night.
I have witnessed numerous lunar and solar eclipses. I have stood outside on my stoep at 4 am and watched Halley’s Comet pass by. It’s unlikely I’ll see it again, in 2061!
But I particularly love gazing into the deep space of a starry night sky, when the air is cool and the bustling daytime sounds quieten down.
And I wonder what is really out there?
I always have.
post script: Here’s some info on the Milky Way Galaxy. And this is a cool scientific animation Travelling from Earth out to the Milky Way and beyond to the edges of the Universe.
